That Waldo's Special Ale is my favorite beer ever...turned me into a double IPA fan forever. I have 4 left and its time to stop hoarding them so in the fridge they go for the holiday weekend.

Also Little Sumpin Extra tastes like a 'little Waldos' to me, very similar flavor profile but not as intense. Great substitute till next April.

#1089 2 years ago

And now I have 3 left

I wasn't the biggest fan of this the first time I tried it, but today it tastes like a different beer and I am liking it a lot.

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

Hard to beat the overall value in this one. $12 and it tastes like it should be $20

Excellent beer, and these are only 9$ or so a bomber at Costco...

#1120 1 year ago

Here's what's currently in the beer fridge in my gameroom... still plenty of hops in there, I love imperial IPAs, but as the weather dips the stouts will start taking over.

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

I am heading back to 2013.
It was a lousy year for me. My old trusty shop truck blew up,someone bought my old shop and canceled the lease(didn’t give a renewal option after 8 years there), my older brother died unexpectedly at 43,my youngest son was hospitalized and diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.All in that order !
Anyway I plan on erasing that year every chance I get so I am starting here but there is a long ways to go

Dude sorry to hear all this, we need to dip into my cellar for the beers I'd offer you for dealing with all that bad mojo.

The Mayan Mocha is brewed with coffee nutmeg chocolate and habanero peppers. I always keep some stocked. They make a bourbon barrel aged version...haven't seen that one in a long time but found Imperial Mayan just this week which I'm eager to try. That BBA Old Stock looks fantastic... i've only starting cellaring beers this year so have not had the chance to appreciate what a few years age can do.

#1125 1 year ago

This is tasting really special, I plan to put some away for a year or two but I don't know if I can keep my hands off it that long.

#1130 1 year ago

Another great Michigan craft beer tonight...

Quoted from Irishbastard:

My dealer had my fix a few weeks ago, Still enjoying it

Lucky !! Sure wish I could get some of that here. Maybe it's possible but I've not seen it.

Quoted from PhilC:

This is one of those beers that seems like it would age well, but unfortunately it does not. It is one of my favorite seasonal releases, but honestly it gains nothing in the cellar, and lost the sharp edges that I enjoyed when it was fresh. No need to keep your hands off, save some bourbon county instead, that needs some time to mellow out!

That's good to know, thank you for telling me. All Backwoods Bastards, into the beer fridge!

#1141 1 year ago

These Dank Juices are all pretty tasty!

IMG_1571 (resized).JPG

#1144 1 year ago

Only tried Griffin Claw BBA Screaming Pumpkin and it was remarkable.

#1157 1 year ago

14.7% , now you're talking. How did you like it, worth looking for?

#1161 1 year ago

Three days off, let's get er started on a high note...

IMG_1658 (resized).JPG

#1163 1 year ago

I have this years 29th edition put away, have not had it before but supposed to be great stuff.

Hey I found some OLD STOCK ALE 2016 so will be giving that a try soon...

#1164 1 year ago

Pretty tasty stuff

IMG_1667 (resized).JPG

#1174 1 year ago

Okay it isn't beer, but has anybody tried this stuff? I like it a lot.

IMG_1693 (resized).JPG

#1176 1 year ago

Never heard of that Sam Adams Utopias...holy crap that is an expensive bottle of beer. Would love to try some of that one.

For today this one which I'm really enjoying

IMG_1701 (resized).JPG

#1178 1 year ago

Well picked this up today, was like eating chocolate cake while sipping bourbon...in a good way. Wow.

I like beer. Here's a new favorite from upper hutt, new Zealand
Boneface hoptron APA

How 'bout a picture of that ride?

Quoted from FuryosJustin:

couple of glamor shots from a magazine spread bout 5 years ago

Well that car is super cool, looks like you could sleep comfortably in it. Awesome, thanks for posting!!

#1258 1 year ago
Quoted from Irishbastard:

Tried this shelfie tonight...Holy F! 12% Not bad...

I really like that one, have a couple 4 packs myself.

#1263 1 year ago

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

Been sitting on this one a while. My favorite scotch ale.

This looks fantastic!!

#1280 1 year ago

Guess I better open this ...

Happy New Years

#1286 1 year ago

First beer of the new year...

IMG_2160 (resized).JPG

#1292 1 year ago

Finally found this one... only $14 for a sixer of bba stout, Lagunitas has done it again. Delicious.

One day of 55 degree weather here in Michigan, the patio was calling me. This stout alone would be a bit cloyingly sweet for me but paired with a cigar it was quite nice.

It’s what I like to call Little Friday some still just considered it Thursday night though.

You must have been cellaring beers for some years now, your variety of vintage beers to drink is crazy.

Finally scored some fresh Boss Tweed and it is really fantastic!

#1351 1 year ago
Quoted from mcluvin:

Did ya mix it with something? Maybe OJ? Never seen an IPA that color.

That's straight out of the can, a New England double IPA. M43 is the regular NEIPA they make and is also great. Hazy is the style.

#1353 1 year ago
Quoted from Irishbastard:

Looks normal to me, looks like a "Juicy" DIPA...Yummy

It is super juicy, really amazing.

#1370 1 year ago

Yes that one looks really interesting, they make great barrel aged beers. Haven't had that one but it's on my radar now.

Quoted from SNES:

Went to the release party this year at the Detroit location. Worked out great!

Well since we're showing off!! I just hit my local spots last week, did pretty good I think.

IMG_2778 (resized).JPG

#1395 1 year ago
Quoted from jgentry:

How is this years KBS tasting? Any news on a CBS release?

I think it is more chocolate forward than last year, hard to recall exactly. I have one bottle from last year and plan to do a side by side comparison.

#1398 1 year ago
Quoted from jgentry:

Release day in TN. Also found a few CBS bombers hidden behind some other bottles.

Wow, nice haul!

#1407 1 year ago

This one has really amazing barrel flavor, but it is very very boozy.

IMG_2954 (resized).JPG

#1412 1 year ago

It's back! Been waiting almost a year for this one...wasn't sure if it could live up to the self imposed hype I have been giving it since 420 last year when I found it....but yes it still is my favorite beer, ever.

#1429 1 year ago
Quoted from ultimategameroom:

Picked up two cases of Waldo yesterday.

Awesome. I have two cases as well, although I gathered it from multiple places. I can almost have one a week till next April, but they won't be lasting that long.

#1433 1 year ago
Quoted from mcluvin:

I almost picked up some of this Friday. Reading the reviews, it just doesn't sound good to me. Couldn't do it.

remove your avatar now!! just kidding, but really dude if you like Lagunitas at all the Waldos is as good as it gets, period.

#1441 1 year ago
Quoted from mcluvin:

Ha! I like to read the Beer Advocate reviews and the term "dank" came up a little too often. I guess it was meant in a good way, but it just didn't sound good to me Maybe I'll grab some next time if they still have it.

If you have had Little Sumpin' Extra, that is very similar flavor profile, for me, just more of it. Plenty of sweetness to balance the hops. Everybodys palate and likes are different but at this price you can't go wrong.

#1444 1 year ago

Finally found some (Boxer)...they renamed it. Delicious.

Quoted from Bowlingpin:

So damn good, better than last years born again..

Just finished my last one from last year, lol. Guess i will look for a twelver.

#1453 1 year ago

Honestly a little underwelmed by this one. It is good, but not alot of barrel flavor and hops are very diminished.

IMG_3251 (resized).JPG

#1455 1 year ago

It is...dank resinous hops...Waldos is nice and dank...Dankwood not really. Founders Redankulous is much more 'dank'.

#1459 1 year ago
Quoted from PinballJeff:

You're right - it was Swillie that commented that it "could" last year at one a week. I'm sure that won't be the case. I've had some IPA's that I haven't noticed much change with age, but this one definitely fell off.

No, no it wont...about 15 gone already i am in agreement, drink these while they are fresh. Wish they made them all year but too good to horde.

#1486 1 year ago
Quoted from Irishbastard:

Mule came through.... Nothing like the OG of NEDIPA's....

Oh c'mon !!

#1498 1 year ago

On a fast train to happy fricken' town now...amazing what a year did for this one. Wow.

IMG_3325 (resized).JPG

#1513 1 year ago

That beer looks very well balanced

#1514 1 year ago

IMG_3377 (resized).JPG

#1522 1 year ago
Quoted from mcluvin:

Yeah. Funny how different microbrews all come in the same kinda packaging now. Kudos to Heineken though. That is some nasty f'n beer, but they've owned Lagunitas for about a year now and haven't f'd it up as far as I can tell. Truthfully, I think distribution has gotten better.

I agree, same great beer and from what I have seen just more of it.

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

First time having this one.
Usually not an IPA guy but the Rum Barrels seemed to have added a little sweetness and turned down the hops.
[quoted image]

Very different, tastes a bit like tequila in that one...wasn't thrilled with it at first taste but ended up really enjoying the four pack.

#1594 1 year ago

Lol!! Pretty cool, is there a 'sit down' model?

#1601 1 year ago

This one surprised me, very tasty stuff. I poured it in the glass just to show the color, but to be honest I like this one better right out of the bottle for some reason .


#1605 1 year ago
Quoted from High_End_Pins:

Damn. I don’t think you could have fit another drop in that glass.
Seeing plenty of this 2018 release around here so far.
Seems a little smoother than last years.
[quoted image]

That's a 12oz glass exactly. The Backwoods is nice and now that it is brewed year round is going to be easy to keep stocked. I am still going thru last years release, will have to try the new one side by side with it.

#1616 1 year ago

This one just landed in my area today... super tasty, lots of barrel character, love it!


#1619 1 year ago
Quoted from mcluvin:

Found these at Costco. $30 for 24 pounders. Dirt cheap for Sweetwater. I think I should be good for the long weekend
[quoted image]

Never tried any of these but yeah can't go too wrong at that price. Thanks

Quoted from Irishbastard:

Do these age well? I may have a few that have been in my fridge long enough to go to preschool..

From what I have read this one is best to drink fresh. I finished mine from last years batch about 6 months old and flavors had dropped off a bit but was still pretty good. So I plan to drink them in the now.
